The Scrying is the first book in The Scrying Trilogy and debut novel by Jaci Miller. This was a fantastic story and a superb debut! I was engrossed in the story right from the beginning. Let’s face it- she had me at modern witch and ancient warrior. I couldn’t get my hands on the book fast enough, and spent the night locked in this spellbinding tale. I didn’t want to put it down till I had read every last word. The story is dark and romantic- full of self-sacrifice, destiny/fate, secrets, ancient evil, prophecy, magic…. And much more.
Dane and Rafe are really brilliant characters who captivated me and had me completely invested in them and the story, the whole way through… and still am! I can’t wait to dive into the next book ASAP!
Ms. Miller writes a riveting story, but her world building is what really made the most impression on me- it is incredible. I was transported into the story, experiencing it in vivid colour right alongside the characters. Her words, and attention to detail brought everything to life, making the ‘world’ and everything that happened, so realistic and believable.
Bring on book #2!
Thank You, Ms. Miller!
